A record of Cornish village life from the late 1930's to the 1950's in a series of lively tales about childhood, schooldays and early manhood. He tells of the painful but comic experience of having his hair cut with sheep shears, of bunking off school to comb the beaches for valuables washed ashore from boat wrecks, and how he used to visit Padstow during his school lunch breaks to see the fishing fleet. Edward Prynne's is a charming collection of reminiscences, which never cease to delight and amuse.show more
